Overview

Whether you ask a scientist, electrician or a romantic matchmaker, they'll all tell you the same thing: opposites attract. And when it comes to the Grayson, consistently one of our top sellers, that same axiom has proven true when it comes to shoe styling as well. Yes, this model's clean profile gives it the respectability of a dress shoe, but it is also delivers the gratifying convenience of a loafer. Sure, it has the cultivated look that only comes with a sleek toe and hand-raised stitching, but its tassel and side-lacing convey an individual spirit that cannot be overlooked. Whether you are charmed by its sophistication or its playfulness-or some combination of the two, we can assure you will fall in love with these shoes that adapt perfectly to both your work and social lives.

A leather sole has a special feel and traditional look that can't be beat. But in certain inclement weather situations or for guys whose jobs involve lots of time on their feet, it can be good to have the traction and stability that only a rubber sole can add. So you don't have to choose between these two options, we decided to fuse them into the tap sole, a leather sole with V-tread rubber inserts on the forefoot and heel. Polished yet practical for the ultimate presence and performance, the tap sole will have you walking tall, and that's no song and dance.

Product Care

Allen Edmonds Shoe Care

When caring for your calfskin, use Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion to remove surface residue and to keep leather soft and pliable. To achieve a fine luster, wipe shoes with a damp cloth and allow them to air dry at room temperature. Then, apply a coat of Allen Edmonds Premium Shoe Polish with a cloth or horsehair dauber and allow to air dry.

Further details and videos are available on our Caring for Your Shoes page.

Reviews
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 185 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Having Issues Before I start this review, I will say - I tried on a number of different sizes prior to purchasing and landed on the correct size before spending my hard earned money (with a sales associate I might add). I can honestly say I am very disappointed with these. The toe box is extremely narrow and my heels are absolutely killing me. Like I said I tried a number of different widths / sizes to make sure I was purchasing the correct size. However, after one day in New York - I am not sure I can wear them again considering I walk a lot. I purchased the black pair as well and have not worn them and am highly considering exchanging them out for something a little more forgiving / comfortable out of the box. Hopefully I am able to do this. Be cautious when purchasing these. They look great, but not sure it is worth it. September 15, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by One Problem Ruins the Shoe I have several pairs of AE shoes I am satisfied with. The Grayson model is well constructed, comfortable when standing or walking on flat ground, but has one design characteristic that makes it miserable. Basically the sides of the shoes are too tall and rub on the ankle uncomfortably when your leg is anything but at a 90 degree angle to the ground. If you are sitting in a car and your leg leans against the door or console, they hurt. If you walk up an incline like a driveway or parking garage at an angle, they hurt. But for this flaw, they would be great dress loafers. August 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gorgeous dress slip-on Possibly the most beautiful and dressy slip-on. I have owned and worn the Grayson for over 10 years and am very pleased with the quality, fit and finish and durability as well as the very, very dressy, yet simple Grayson. I've not yet had the need to re-craft them. And wonderful for a narrow foot. August 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent for occasional wear I prefer lace up for every day but when I want some extra pizzaz I enjoy wearing these. They fit well and look very nice, I am very pleased July 13, 2016

Answer: 
Allen Edmonds shoes generally weigh between 3 and 4 lbs when shipped. Shoe weight will vary depending on the size and width of a shoe; however, these variations will be fairly insignificant. Based on the leather and components of the Grayson and the Maxfield, there isn’t a significant measurable difference in weight to consider one lighter than the other.

Answer: 
There is no difference, one of the style names is simply more descriptive than the other; they are both burnished and use the same walnut leather and finish.

Answer: 
While the Combination V-Tread tap sole provides better traction than a traditional leather sole, it is not considered to be a non-slip sole. We recommend exercising caution when wearing this or any shoe in slippery environments.

I have over 40 pairs of Allen Edmonds - size 9D. I have one pair, Bentons, of tie shoes with vibram soles in 9C. That's the only pair in all I have where I needed a size adjustment because of the heel box. I have two pairs of Graysons that fit the same as the rest of my shoes.

Answer: 
Allen Edmonds shoes are constructed on a wide variety of lasts (foot molds) and each will feature unique fit characteristics. It is difficult to recommend a size through this channel and guarantee a proper fit. Each last will fit differently based on the contours of your feet. The Grayson is constructed on the 97 Last which is the best fit for the average foot, and it has a soft, slightly pointed toe.

It is vitally important to visit a master fitter in one of our retail stores or retail partners to increase your chances of being fit correctly for each last and style. However, keep in mind that products purchased on allenedmonds.com may be returned at any time, as long as the item is unused and accompanied by the packing slip. Trying the shoes on a carpeted surface will help prevent scuffing on the sole and keep the shoes in returnable condition.
